Richard’s feedback to the Corn Exchange:

“Just home from afternoons workshop. Had to write to tell you how much I enjoyed it. Excellently run by Ursula whose guidance was very reassuring but allowed us all to do our own thing. Really relaxing and just feeling I was improving when it was over - all too quick. May have found myself a new pastime! Congrats on a really enjoyable workshop.”
